Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 17, 2010
Utah personal injury attorneys, The Advocates at Driggs, Bills and Day, recently won a case for an injured client who was hurt in automobile accident over three years ago. In November of 2006, the man was rear ended while stopped at a red light. The other car slammed into his car, leaving him with spinal medical issues. After years of pain and suffering, he went to The Advocates.
“When insurance companies won’t work with you, getting what you need can be a long process,” said founding partner and personal injury attorney Matthew Driggs. “But we don’t give up. Because of that, our client was able to get money to pay for his past and future medical bills and make up for the lost work time.”
Prior to trial, the highest offer from the insurance company was $9,650, which would do little to help pay for personal injury and lost work time. The client had over $15,000 in past medical bills and another $35,000 to pay, plus had not been able to work full time in over three years. With the help of The Advocates, the jury awarded the man $120,000 to pay for his past medical bills and lost work compensation, and to pay for a future spinal fusion surgery, which should greatly alleviate his pain.
“Our client was a flooring subcontractor, which means he spends all day on his knees installing flooring. With the injuries to his back and neck, he has been at half capacity, losing money and piling up medical bills. With this settlement, he will be able to get the surgery he needs to put him back at 100%. This is how every case should go; the compensation was fair and reasonable and will really help our client get back to work and provide for his family.”
